Attention Juniors and Seniors: On behalf of the school administration and your Activities Director/Senior Class Sponsor (Mr. Furo) we express our deepest regrets that Prom and Grad Bash have been canceled for this year.  Please note that both events were canceled by the venues, so the cancelations were beyond our control, even though ultimately we would have needed to make the same decision to cancel.  Full refunds are being processed and will be mailed to you.  Prom money is still in our account, and the refunds can be printed and mailed as soon as our bookkeeper is allowed to return to campus.  Grad Bash tickets and buses had already been purchased, so we need to wait for those funds to be returned to us.  We expect to receive that money in time to print your refund checks also as soon as our bookkeeper returns to campus.  Seniors, we are waiting to know exactly when we will return to campus so that we will know what options we have for making your Senior Year end on a special note.

Attention Seniors:  Every year at graduation we have several student speakers, which include the Valedictorian, Salutatorian, Senior Class President, and Student Government President.  Our tradition has also been to include one additional speech from a member of the graduating class by conducting a speech contest.  Every Senior is invited to submit a speech for consideration by emailing it to Mr. Furo.  The winner of the speech contest will deliver his/her speech at graduation.  If you wish to enter, please email your speech to Stephen.furo@ocps by April 3rd.

Did you know that we have a floriculture team? Our FFA chapter recently competed in a Career Development Event that required plant identification of 120 different varieties, a Floral arrangement practicum, Equipment identification, and a hazardous material practicum. Our first year team team of  Ariel Ramlal, Christine Narvaez, Mia Rodriquez, and Jana Sankar took 13th in the state out of 28 teams.
